DAVE MUSTAINE Slams METALLICA At GIGANTOUR's New York Stop

A BLABBERMOUTH.NET visitor has submitted the following report from last night's (Thursday, Sept. 28) Gigantour 2006 stop at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York:

"Althought I can't recall the entire setlist from last night's show, the pinnacle was when Dave [Mustaine; MEGADETH mainman and one-time guitarist for METALLICA] started the next song by playing some herky jerky riffs that sounded very half-hearted. Those strangled notes were a mangled 'Mechanix'. He then works his way to the mic and says, 'That's how THEY play it... This is how WE play it...' They then tore through a blazing rendition of 'Mechanix'.

"Does this mean the feud is on???"

"Mechanix" was the former version of "The Four Horsemen", the METALLICA song that was was co-written by Mustaine. METALLICA wrote new lyrics and renamed the song "The Four Horsemen" after Dave was kicked out of the band. The track "Mechanix" later appeared on MEGADETH's debut album, "Killing Is My Business...and Business Is Good" (1985).

In a spring 2006 interview with Classic Rock Revisited, Mustaine stated about his public feuds with METALLICA and SLAYER's Kerry King, "We all have good and bad things in our life. Because I am a public figure, people tend to take sides. What do I have now in my life that causes me problems? I have the ongoing feud with METALLICA that I don't want to have any part of anymore. I have come to terms with all of that and I would like to consider them friends. I also have a feud with Kerry King of SLAYER. I have no idea what that is even about as I have nothing against Kerry. In my entire life, I have two problems. How many people do you know that only have two problems in their life? The sad thing about it is that it is publicized."
